This project is supported by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) / CDTR Collaborative.

The ADA/CDTR Collaborative provides funding to:

  • Early-stage investigators who apply for the CDTR’s P&F grant and score within the fundable range but are not funded because the CDTR does not have sufficient funds to adequately support the project. Grants must be aligned with ADA priorities for consideration.
  • Leverage the rigorous review process in place at each CDTR to minimize any additional administrative burden by the CTDR and ADA
  • Ensure the efficacy and viability of the proposed research with a minimum investment
  • Allow for optimization of design prior to the launch of a larger scale study
  • Advance the number of early career investigators focused on diabetes research
  • Increase career advancement and retention in the field of diabetes
